"Working in partnership with the communities represented here today, we will develop a new comprehensive strategy to secure America's information and communications networks." - President Obama, May 29, 2009 In response to the President’s call to secure the United States (and Canadian) cyber infrastructure, The White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) and the NITRD Program Senior Steering Group (SSG) for Cybersecurity R&D have developed the Leap-Ahead Initiative with the goal of developing a national cybersecurity leap-ahead R&D agenda. Whitenoise Laboratories (Canada) Inc. is pleased to have been asked by the White House OSTP to participate in this plenum. “Whitenoise Dynamic Distributed Key Infrastructures and Dynamic Identity Verification and Authentication, or DIVA, provide continuous authentication, inherent intrusion detection, and automatic denial of network access to criminal behavior,” said Andre’ Brisson, co founder of Whitenoise Laboratories (Canada) Inc. “Whitenoise technologies can easily be deployed in the five categories that have been identified by the Whitehouse OSTP to have game-changing potential to secure networks” said Andre Brisson. The five new games will be explored at the invitation-only NCLY Summit scheduled for August 17-20, 2009, in Arlington, Virginia. Invited Summit participants will examine the forces of progress and inertia and recommend the most productive ways to induce the new games to materialize over the next decade. The Summit’s outcomes will serve as input to the Administration’s cybersecurity R&D agenda and as strategies for public-private actions to secure the Nation’s digital future.
